Over 90% of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Africa do not have any form of automation in their business processes. Storage, retrieval and processing are all done manually on paper. This slows down business and also prevents businesses from being able to capture the insights from their data that would enable them to make intelligent decisions. In June 2012, with a year left in college, Titus decided this was the problem he wanted to solve. He left school and has been building, a low-cost business management platform for SMEs in the developing world, ever since.
